PowerPoint 2016 - Page numbers appear in Layout but appear on some -- not all-- actual slides - How to Fix

Last Modified: 2020-08-13
I have a slide layout that's used by about 30 various pages in a PPT deck. The layout contains the page number code.  Some of the slides using this layout are displaying the page number at the bottom of the slide. Others are showing nothing. It's as though the layout had no page number symbol?
How can I fix this so that all slides using this layout are displaying the page number, just as it appears in the layout.
